Squashes are of New World origin, their importance as a crop evolving during the pre-Colombia era in the Americas. Summer zucchini varieties, however saw much of their development in Italy, generations after their introduction from the New World, which can attribute to zucchini's placement within Italy's culinary history. Dubbed garden overachievers, summer squash varieties are considered easy to grow, thriving in full sun, warm weather and rich moist organic soil. Summer squash varieties (free of pests, specifically vine borers) will bear at least two to three abundant harvests of fruit per season. Squashes vary from vine to bush type varieties: trailing vines tend to be more invasive and overwhelming. Gold Bar squash grows on compact bush plants which allow for great harvests of edible blossoms in addition to fruit.
